A. Trevor Sutton's essay "Modern Love: The Findings of a Sorority Chaplain" (Relief 3.1) has been selected by Robert Atwan as a "notable essay of 2009" in the Houghton Mifflin Best American Essays 2010 anthology. Trevor's essay is the second to receive notable mention in this anthology, and as I've already told him, nothing makes us happier than seeing our authors get the recognition they deserve. Since Relief is (for the time being) not able to pay for publication as we would like, we do everything we can to promote our authors and see their work anthologized and honored beyond publication in the journal. In our less than 4 years of publication, we have been thrilled to see 6 of our authors receive honorable mentions in anthologies such as Pushcart Prize, Best American Essays, and The Best Spiritual Writing.
So a special thanks and congratulations, Trevor. You've done us proud.
